I lost about 10% when remapping, but my fueling is VERY aggressive.

Hi Tony that was with my 2nd map and I now have a 3rd map that I have uploaded since refueling. It seems to be even smoother at low speed and acceleration a teeny bit more urgent so wonder how this one will affect mpg. May be difficult to get a proper comparison now that temperatures are dropping here. To be honest though I did not buy the bike for economy so will stick with the 3rd map regardless

Colder temps mean your economy will drop even further. But, like you said, I didn't do this for fuel savings. I'm VERY please with my big HP bump - the "little" bike just flies now.

I am pleased I followed your lead regarding the Rexxer way forward and I hope many others do the same and reap the rewards. I had a NC700S before this as needed decent economy at the time and was getting at least 75 mpg but after 2 years circumstances changed allowing me to choose a more exciting bike. Am sure I will not be thrashing the bike constantly once I have got accustomed to the excitement of the new map and expect around 50 mpg still

Tony

Best I've managed is 187 miles and it took 13 litres to fill it up..
that's over 65 mpg UK

Before 1st service, but generally ignoring the 6k limit once properly warmed up.

Had 1st service at the weekend and fuel remap for Termi can.

Before you get too excited, it's a Sixty2
I'd expect the fuel figures to be better than the 800.
Average is 63.3 for first 700 miles.

So far, an indicated 101mph.
That's with the Termignoni race pipe but before the fuel map install.

Before the Termi install, at about 670 miles, I never pushed it beyond 80mph but there was certainly more there.
Not been for a run since the fuel map update as it was only 2 days ago.

Update - an indicated 106mph and the rev limiter lights started flashing.
Could probably squeeze a few more wearing less 'flappy' gear and getting down on the tank...
